Tikitag: Personal Tagging

This isn’t the first idea of real-life geotagging but a new system called Tikitag certainly looks to be the most successful. Think of it as a personal RFID system with a receiver and some sticky tags. These are fully programmable in the sense that you can associate any URL with the RFID tag. Throw it on a pack of condoms and have it take you to JDate. Now that’s a pretty clear message.

Throw one on your biz card and have it take your client to your website. Presto! If the idea of bringing the Internet into the real world excites you, you should probably seek professional help or Amazon.com, where you can purchase Tikitags for $50 on October 1st. That’ll net you a scanner and ten tags, quite enough to cause some havoc.
